We sat up for hours listening to music and talking about our favorites. Some of it I knew, some of it I had never heard and most all of it I liked. By the time early morning came, my head was foggy, my eyes were heavy and I was crushing... and not just on the music.
I tried to hunt down one song in the sea of new music that was given to me right before I left. I still can't find it, even though I know it's there. Maybe that's because it won't sound as good as it did that night.

If I don't pinch myself every 15-20 minutes I can quite honestly begin to believe that I am staying at Dr. Dolittle's house. Two cats, a dog, and more ants, mosquitoes and bugs than you can count. Loving the country; hating the little red bites all over my body. Must be because I am so sweet.

had s*x in your dress.
that is all.
Hey, I say the more action the better!
Age: like I would ever tell!All of the Ondash women in this picture are completely stunning and I am pretty sure half of Ohio is crushing on one, if not all three, of them right now... but Mel put in a special request. And to be honest I am a little embarrassed that I didn't include her sooner!
So ladies and gentlemen, start your people crushing (I know we already are!).

In what: Post Secret book
Snapped: because it made me giggle and anyone that knows "Doug" will find it as funny as I did
... if you aren't familiar with "Doug" then yeah, this won't be funny at all. Better luck next time!
The weather that night was unseasonably cold, but I insisted upon wearing my little dress and sandals to dinner anyway. Partly because that is just how I am and partly because I knew you would enjoy seeing it as much as I would enjoy wearing it.
You called to let me know you were downstairs and as I grabbed my things and started to walk toward the door, I felt a familiar feeling in my stomach. Later you teased me for carrying a bottle of Pepto in my bag. I giggled, rolled over and pulled the covers back over my head, not wanting to explain that it cured butterflies too.

we're all high high high, high high on wiggling hips
ah ooh! you break off your plans for the weekend
and ah oh! you can tell them the dates
but that don't mean they're letting you go
Age: Let's focus on him actually making it through the week
Boo, the fish not the Petco worker, is the newest addition to Momushka's pond in the backyard. Last we checked he made it through the night and was holding his own against the much larger fish, not to mention the treacherous waterfall that tends to stir things up.
Why we love him: because secretly we have been wanting a fish since the 80's.
Why you love him: because secretly so have you.

Due to a lack of breakfast snacks, I opened the cabinet and decided to have a fortune cookie with my coffee this morning.
"Real courage is moving forward when the outcome is uncertain."
Ok, fess up, I know someone planted it there on purpose!
It is barely 10 am and so far Momushka has:
- asked me how regular I am
- shown me her new 'observation deck' where we can lounge and look at the pond she dug last summer
- asked me to make sure to keep my things to a confined area, so as to not clutter up the house
This is what I meant to say to everyone yesterday before I got on the plane...
Thank you. You know me inside and out, in some ways better than I know myself, and yet you still love me unconditionally. You see my quirks, my moments of being completely irritable or crabby; the times in the morning when you ask me what the weather is like outside and I snap that I haven't been outside yet, when I really want help but am toO stubborn to ask, or even when I start to run around like I took the puppy crack and you just stand aside and laugh. For the past weeks you have made me feel so special, so loved and so supported, as I make the move to Italy and follow my dream for a year.
For all of you, all of this, all of our ups and downs and questionable judgements, I would like you to know that never in the world will I meet a better group of friends, a more hilarious group of people, and a group of unique individuals that looks the world in the eye, says I don't give a shit and just keeps on rocking life with a smile.
A year flies by and if I know you all well, I know that Pete is already making my coming back mix, Claudia is already planning the venue, Chris is already wondering what she will wear, Corbett is already planning the menu, Yael is already thinking of a speciality cocktail, Ro and Greg are already setting aside the time, DK is making sure Rex can come in for the event, Shulman is already buying the Sparks, Kas has already started drinking said Sparks, Gerry is already (still) trying to teach Stewie a new trick, and everyone else is waiting for the gem of an evite to come out.
From the bottom of my heart, I love you guys so much! I will see you soon!!!!

I even briefly considered just dying them myself, but something tells me that past the age of 12 it is not acceptable to have red fingers... plus it totally wouldn't match my outfit for tonight!

I am in desperate need of a new pair. I have searched every store in Georgetown and still have not found any I love. F21 used to be my go-to for some new shades, but I think it is finally time to upgrade. Someone, anyone, help!

You've got to try and throw this party just as far as you can
Cre-cre-cre-creosote is pouring out of my brain
I swear I heard the floor boards they were creaking your name.
Get a room, Get a Head, Get a Hat
We're going to hell anyway lets travel first class
Too much to do and so little time. I am finally at the point where I am ready to go. Or maybe it is more that I am tired of waking up every morning with the anxiety of knowing that I have just a few days left and too many people to still see and hug and say "see you later" to before I leave.
So instead I am going to go for a run, do yoga and go to the drycleaners. I promise to share all of the pictures soon, but for now I am sort of happy just keeping them close to my heart.

Hi, hello, ciao! It's me. I am still alive. Just have been soaking up my time off and pretty negligent about posting. But don't worry your pretty little heads off, I have some real gems coming your way... tomorrow... because right now it is 4:30 and that means it's time for happy hour!

Yup! That is my apt. in Florence! Want to know my favorite part?
The giant sized front door, which is all castle-like and whatnot.
"Come and knock on my door..."
I walked into the office to a brilliant poster of Italy. Attached to it are cards with Italian phrases and on the back of each card someone in my office wrote me a little message.
I am not good at goodbyes. I would much rather just avoid them all together. Walk out like it was any other normal day, except in my mind know that it isn't any other day, it is the last day. Goodbyes seem to final. And final freaks me out.
When I was little I loved having all of the attention on me. Birthdays were the best, but let's be honest, I would take being the center of attention anyday. Now, I am a little more content flying under the radar. I get embarrassed in a way, when all of the attention is on me. It is humbling, seeing people go out of their way to make me feel so good. And I guess that is what I don't know how to react to. Because I know that my words will never quite be able to convey how much it all means to me, how truly special I feel and how everyday I think how lucky I am to have the amazing people that are in my life.
So rather than try, I would just rather smile and wave on my way out, knowing that I am taking some pretty amazing memories with me.

Right now someone else is getting ready to put on their pajamas and go to sleep on my bed. My apartment is now someone else's home. I am a couture bag lady, gypsying around from place to place. Which I find ironic... how right now in my life I feel safer than ever, even without my powershield.

Age: 26The outfit pretty much speaks for itself... but if you are still wondering why he is your latest crush, let me break it down for you.
Merker will always:
- be having three conversations at once, two of which are on his phone
- say whatever random thing pops into his head at any given time
- have a huge smile on his face
- just not give a damn what other people think... which is why we love him!
So here is my question... why are you still reading this post when you could be at Franco's sipping vino?
(since the old blog has gone bye bye, I started the people crush list over. but trust me loves, that doesn't make anyone on the old list any less crush worthy!)
